Parent Nominations Are Now Being Accepted for Hamden’s 2018-19 Talented and Gifted (TAG) Program
Has your 4th or 5th grade student demonstrated evidence of superior intellectual, creative or academic language arts ability? If so, he or she may benefit from participation in Hamden’s TAG Program.
Hamden’s TAG program is centered on Language Arts and is for 5th and 6th grade students, with identification being done while students are in 4th and 5th grade. Teachers and/or parents/guardians may nominate children for consideration to participate in the program.
Students who are nominated go through a process that examines student academic Language Arts achievement results, creativity, demonstrated skills on performance tasks and attitudinal measures. This evaluation occurs in late winter and spring. Toward the end of May, parents receive notification of whether or not their child has been accepted into the program.
Students who are accepted begin the program in the fall, leaving their usual 5th or 6th grade classrooms one day per week to attend our TAG Program at Alice Peck School. There, students receive differentiated instruction beyond that being provided in their regular school programs in order to help them realize their intellectual, creative or language arts potential. Students are expected to make up (on their own time) any work they miss at their home schools while participating in TAG activities.
If you think your child may qualify for Hamden’s TAG program, you may nominate him or her for evaluation by completing the Parent/Guardian TAG Program Nomination Form. Forms must be received by February 23, 2018 for consideration.
